However, the answer lies in how much of a hobbyist you really are. If you're the type that doesn't mind working a bit harder to get things to work, it might be fun for you. Because there is no officially released 64-bit Linux port of the classic interface on version 10, you will have problems if you call on tech support. People have used Maple 10 on a 64-bit Linux machine and the performance of the 64-bit Maple 10 kernel is known to be faster. Here is the Maple Math's blog entry dealing with Maple 10 on 64-bit Linux.
